Big Jungle Cactus


Up to this point on our trip in Costa Rica we had seen only a few scraggly cactus high up in the canopy on the trails in the jungle national parks. Here we were driving along a country road through farms and over hills, and BAM there was this tree covered with jungle cacti and lots of bright red tillandsias too.

This is quite the site to see. I wonder how long the tree can survive with that much weight on it? Strong trunk, I suppose.
